Recently, Christina appeared on the Bravo television series “Star Portraits”, painting Margaret Trudeau, who chose Christina’s work as the winning portrait.

She regularly performs live music in Canada, the United States and Internationally and was nominated with Richard Oddie for a Quartz electronic music award for experimentation and research in Paris in 2010. In 2012 she was awarded an OAC education grant to provide electronic music classes for young women under the name In the Loop Music with collaborator, Naomi Hocura.
